Ways to save money: a series

After the huge success of my home buying post last week (this month I’ve surpassed my best views in the last 6 months!), I thought I would take the opportunity to write a series of posts featuring ways we save money in our everyday lives.

In my series I will be talking about some of the websites that we use a lot as well as up-and-coming sites that can help you to save money on the things you love. I will also be covering off topics such as:

1.Saving money on your household shopping

2.How to fill your child’s wardrobe for less

3.How to save money on your utilities

4.Getting the best out of your banking

I was greeted by the lovely Jennie who had organised the event and offered a delicious smoothie whilst I browsed the store and waited for the Nails Inc folks to get set up.
